A binary orange star in the constellation of Pisces, nearly 130 light years from Earth. Its proximity to the First Point of Aries earns it the distinction of being just the third star in the Bright Star Catalog, and the first with a Flamsteed number (HR 1 or BSC 1 is in Andromeda, and HR 2 is in Pisces, not far in fact from 33 Piscium, but neither of these stars appear in Flamsteed's catalogue).
